Mik Hetu

Gender: Male
Focus: Writer
Reason: Smile-ify'er
Story:

Mik Hetu made something out of nothing, or more accurately, he noticed something right in front of all our faces and from it made something fun for all of us. He took the world’s love of a simple, very human thing (napping) and combined it with another very human thing (joking and teasing each other about napping) and made a little book to celebrate the fun of it all: Napism.Info – for people who take their naps “religiously.”

Reason: X-Ray Vision
Story:

It is my honor to name the author Shaman Elizabeth Herrera as my Hero and Role Model. I’m proud that she is taking a stand and speaking out about global issues that affect us all, as I know that it takes a lot of courage to do that. Also, she has written some amazing books that carry important messages that we all need to hear today.

She uses her books’ story lines and characters to carry explanations of Native American spirituality and to call attention to environmental concerns. So, she achieves the hard trick of educating while entertaining and entertaining while educating.
